The ATP posted this feature on Spanish No. 2, Fernando Verdasco. My favorite line: “Being the center of attention does not bother or upset me.” What a shocker!
And then there’s the opener: “Cool, calm and with catwalk charisma, he’s the pinup boy of men’s tennis.” Did Nando write that himself?
But once I got past the “model behavior” stuff, I thought: wow, this guy’s had one hell of a year. I just hope he has another match like the one he played against Nadal in this year’s Australian Open semifinal in him. That’s on my Best Matches Ever list.
Moving on, the ATP also did a piece on Stefan Edberg:
Nothing earth-shattering, but Stefan’s always a pleasure to watch!
